P. Connolly, B.Com ('64). The ideas about the strategy are on-line now inside dividendgrowth.ca  It is blog of a few pages a month plus links, special one page White Paper summaries now and then, and a lot of dividend growth data. The entire Graham data and explanations mentioned in Rob Carrick's July 2020 column is there too. This blog will continue well into 2021. Access is $50. Some ten years of blog, reports and dividend data are inside. You are paying for this and the strategy developed over thirty years of research and practice.  
-This blog will continue well into 2019. Access is $50. Some ten years of blog, reports and dividend data are inside. You are paying for this and the strategy developed over thirty years of research and practice. The strategy of dividend growth investing could easily earn you a higher than market returns, in the area of 12% eventually, if properly executed. A lot depends upon the kind of person you are. A patient, disciplined person will succeed. If you seek promises of instant success, high yields and a list of stock recommendations, to put it bluntly, go somewhere else. We provide ideas and data: you decide. I follow the principles of the old masters: John M. Keynes, Ben Graham, Arnold Bernhard, Philip Fisher, Stephen Jarislowsky and Warren Buffett. Modern portfolio theory is rejected. We do not mention beta. Risk is not volatility and can't be diversified away. As intrinsic value grows, equities become less risky than bonds. In the main, dividend growth drives capital growth. ♣ Our most recent data sheet (Dec 1st 2018) has 35 dividend growth stocks with year-by-year dividend data for the last decade, plus price in 2008 and 2018 and CAGR of both dividends and price, much like Rob Carrick's column, as evidence that as the dividend grows, so does the price. This is the secret of what we do: it is a double double. Income goes up, capital grows too. $50 gets you access to my 38 years of research. **dividendgrowth.ca** will remain open for at least another year.+

Can you think of a better retirement asset? Growing income. And no MER. And no maintenance or maturity date. I don't understand why people switch to bonds in retirement. Have you ever known a bond to increase its interest rate? I don't buy bonds, or G.I.C.s. I seek to produce consistent returns from individual dividend-paying common stocks rather than risk the chance of stellar gains that might come with go-go stocks.

How dependable are the dividends, you ask? Well, I only buy stocks of companies which have solid earnings, electrical utilities, pipelines, banks, and food retailers mostly. And further, I want companies which have paid dividends for a least a decade, preferably more: 20 years is a good standard. Dividends are surer than capital gains.

-Increasing income is the key. Say you are 50. Assume further that you buy a common stock with a 5% yield and that over the next few decades the dividend grows at 4% a year. By the time you are 69, you could be getting over 12% on your money. Consider this too: if the common stock with the growing income is in your RRIF, you might not ever have to touch the original capital in your RRIF. Whether the market goes up or down in the short term is irrelevant. The growing dividends can supply a good portion of your retirement income and, in most cases, your capital grows along with the dividend. I've been retired twenty years and withdrawing from my RRIF for five years. Not only is my original capital still intact, it has more doubled. The 4% maximum withdrawal rule, often touted by planners, does not apply provided you set up your dividend growth strategy well before retirement+Increasing income is the key. Say you are 50.

The growing dividends can supply a good portion of your retirement income and, in most cases, your capital grows along with the dividend. I've been retired twenty four years and withdrawing from my RRIF for eleven years. Not only is my original capital still intact, it has more doubled. The 4% maximum withdrawal rule, often touted by planners, does not apply provided you set up your dividend growth strategy well before retirement. Think closer to a 5% figure.

Here's why you have to get out of mutual funds, not be put into ETFs and learn to invest on your own. "Between 1984 and 2002, the stock market index made returns of 12.2 per cent a year. The average mutual fund investor made 2.6 per cent." Hard to believe, eh!
